Osaka, Japan--Report on Large-Scale Fa Study, Hongfa, and Clarifying the Truth
On March 3rd and 4th, a large-scale event of Fa study, hongfa, and clarifying the truth to people was held in Osaka, Japan. Practitioners from all over Japan overcame many difficulties to participate in this activity. To save on expenses, Kanpou area practitioners rode a full-passenger overnight train for almost ten hours to Osaka.
March 3rd was scheduled for group study. Over eighty practitioners from Kansai, Hiroshima, Kanpou, Nakano, and other areas participated in this activity. Everyone studied the Fa and exchanged experiences together. Through studying the Teacher's new articles and lectures in various countries, everyone realized even more clearly that in Japan we should put forth even more effort to clarify the truth to people, expose the crimes that President Jiang's group committed -- using the powers at hand to fabricate lies and brutally persecute Falun Gong -- and give people an opportunity to know the truth. At the same time, in the process of clarifying the truth, we are cultivating ourselves, because our cultivation way stresses knowingly cultivating our main consciousness. Thus, we are eager to come out to clarify the truth to people. It is the best opportunity for cultivation, and this is the true reason for our existence during this period. During this time through Fa study, there are more and more Japanese practitioners who are bold enough to break the unique mentality of Japanese people, devote themselves to hongfa and clarify the truth to people.
We are all very happy to realize that the spread of Dafa in Japan has moved forward another gratifying step. At the same time, we have also clearly seen that there are still many Japanese people who have not heard of Dafa. They need us to put forth more effort into showing the people the truth; we cannot be complacent. Since each of us is a particle within Dafa, we should be responsible in everything we do. There is no room for complacency.
On March 4th, we held group exercises and a truth-clarifying parade.
12:15 p.m. -- 12:45 p.m., we met with reporters. Mr. Tsuruzono Masaaki. Representing the practitioners gave a brief speech, pointing out that the Tiananmen self-immolation incident was staged by the Chinese government, and appealed to international organizations to give Dafa support and have a third party investigate the self-immolation incident.
1:00 p.m., the parade started; 120 practitioners participated. Many banners and photographs exposed to people the cruel persecution suffered by practitioners inside China. Several practitioners followed the parade troop and disseminated truth-clarifying flyers to further validating Dafa. Several cars with bright pictures of Dafa added colorfulness to the parade, drawing even more attention. Pedestrians, one after another, stopped to look at the photographs and read the newsletters.
"How could the evil run rampant any longer?" As long as China does not stop persecuting Dafa, our job of clarifying the truth can never stop. Students both inside and outside of China in Dafa cultivation are one body. When practitioners' xinxing as a whole upgrades enough, it will be the day that Fa rectifies the human world. Therefore, we should make the best use of our time to study the Fa, and we should play the role of a Dafa particle in clarifying the truth during Fa-rectification. As long as we can accomplish this, evil will perish itself.
